Guidelines for teeth treatment under anesthesia

We use a developed in detail, verified set of measures, which includes a sequence of actions to be undertaken by anesthesiologist and doctor, high-quality medicines, and professional equipment.

Anesthetic drugs that are used nowadays are called “smart”. Their impact, the duration of anesthesia can be forecasted and controlled by an anesthesiologist. The patient is under general anesthesia as much as necessary for a surgical procedure or teeth treatment.
